United targetting a new keeper?

Following the mistake made by David De Gea that led to Clint Dempsey’s stoppage time equaliser in Sunday’s 1-1 draw at Tottenham Hotspur, Manchester United have been linked with a string of potential goalkeeping targets.

Metro have reported that Real Madrid and Spain number one Iker Casillas could make the move to Old Trafford, though a deal would not happen until the end of the season, while the Mirror suggest that the Reds will battle it out with neighbours Manchester City for Stoke City’s Asmir Begovic.

However, The Sun say that, following the race with Arsenal to secure the services of Crystal Palace winger Wilfred Zaha, the two clubs will again lock horns over a move for Queens Park Rangers keeper Julio Cesar.

Meanwhile, the deal to bring Zaha to Old Trafford looks to be a step closer, as a fee seems to have been agreed between the clubs, with the possibility of United loaning the player back to the Eagles looking increasingly likely.

Elsewhere, The Independent have reported that United legend Ryan Giggs is set to complete the mandatory qualification for Premier League and Champions League managers, a feat that has not yet  been achieved by someone whilst still playing.
